God woke me up at 4 am this morning and laid an early christian influence of mine on my heart.  Bob Harrington is “The Chaplain of Bourbon Street”.  My heart was wrenched when he left the ministry and spent 20 years running from God.  We have similar stories except that his wilderness time came at the peak of his ministry and mine came before it even got started.  That and the fact that a phone call from his friend Rex Humbard brought him back to God.  Though most of you do not know the name I hope to have many Rex Humbards as guides in my life.  I was saddened to see that Bob had lost his wife in July of this year.  He has also retired after adding many years of fruitful ministry to his legacy.  We are both reminders that God’s call to ministry is never negated by the foolishness of men, even when it is our own.  He waits patiently for his prodigals.   Thank you Lord for your patience!
